Altered Eclectics - September Anything Goes Challenge

Hello, Crafty Peeples!
It is time, once again for me to start making these little coupon wallets that I so love giving as RAK gifts.   This one was actually created for another challenge, but was rejected, so I decided to use it for this month Altered Eclectics Anything Goes Challenge.

I think I am going to keep this as a reminder that failure isn't always a negative!  I love this set and it has received nice reviews from those who have seen it in real life!

RECYCLED CHIPBOARD 
COUPON WALLET AND KEYCHAIN MINI ENSEMBLE
I love these little coupon wallets and Key Chain Tag Minis.  This time, I added a pillbox.  This large hinge was the inspiration for the project.  I had two and hope to use one on a journal project.  The pillbox is a mini Altoid's tin!
One thing I learned during from this "failed" adventure is that I am a "free range" crafter!  It is rather fun to get back to just crafting!
This was my first experiment using accordion folds on my wallets. The new design will have the accordion fold on the bottom as well.
The inside is really simple but functional and fun!  The pad has a magnetic strip on the back but I also made a pocket so that a non-magnetic pad may be used as well.

Cover construction:  Chipboard covered in kraft paper.  The kraft paper was then colored with ink, stamped and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Materials Used:
Chipboard
Kraft Paper
Various Printed Papers
Decorative Hinge
Raffia
Magnetic Tape Strip
Brads
Various Inks
All the materials used are from my stash.  Sorry, I don't have the brand names.  It doesn't matter anyway.  Use what you have and make it work!
